Chevrolet's first hybrid Corvette resulted in another first at a New Hampshire dealership last week.
A group of customers camped outside MacMulkin Chevrolet in Nashua so they could be atop the waitlist for the Corvette E-Ray when it arrives later this year. Chevy gave MacMulkin priority for E-Ray orders because it's the top-selling Corvette dealership in the country.
"I've been in the retail auto business for 25 years," the store's sales manager, Tony Dillberg, told TV station WMUR. "I have never seen customers wait outside overnight for any vehicle."
Customers began lining up Monday, Jan. 30. The dealership was allowed to start taking E-Ray orders and deposits at 8 a.m. Wednesday. Employees let everyone inside the showroom at 5 a.m.
